Special Considerations

Listed Buildings

Listed buildings are objects or structures that have been judged by Historic England and the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport to be of national importance in terms of architectural or historic interest. These structures, once approved, feature on a dedicated register called the List of Buildings of Special Architectural or Historic Interest.

There are increased rules around listed buildings, so any garden building or outbuilding that is to be placed within the curtilage of a listed property will require planning permission. If you go one step further and require a structure to be built and attached to a listed property, you will need both listed building consent AND planning permission (although this is a service that Crane does not offer).

These restrictions should not put you off though, as we build a considerable number of garden buildings for customers with listed properties.
